Dallas College celebrates National Hispanic Heritage Month with a slew of online events featuring everything from Latin dance lessons to salsa and piñata making. Performance artist Christian Cruz and Diane Guerrero from “Orange is the New Black” will talk about their work.

Hispanic Heritage Month runs from Sept. 15-Oct. 15 every year and celebrates the achievements of those with Hispanic or Latino roots. President Lyndon Johnson started the tradition in 1968 as Hispanic Heritage Week and President Ronald Reagan extended the time-frame to a month in 1988.
